There’s a new Toyo tire on the market, the M137 for long-haul, over-the-highway steer-axle applications. Designed to deliver mileage, Toyo says, the M137 is a product of the company’s ‘e-balance’ design technology that focuses on a stiffer belt package, stiffer bead construction, and optimization through simulation technology. A new tread design is said to provide even contact pressure distribution across the tread surface for smooth wear and extended tire life. The casing profile minimizes growth of the tread and maintains a more uniform and flatter tread radius, also improving the tire life.
The M137’s profile retention reduces strain at the belt and ply turn-up edges. During operation, special cap and base tread compounds reduce heat at the belt edge and excessive heat build-up inside the tire structure, improving retreadability. Its 15/32nd deep five-rib design is coupled with deep sipes and four straight, multi-pitched grooves for enhanced water drainage and wet traction in challenging weather conditions.
It’s available in two sizes, a 295/75R22.5 and a 285/75R24.5.
